About Our Logo
In Chinese culture, the image of the phoenix not only represents the harmony of humans and natural elements. In the Five Elements of Chinese medicine, the Red Phoenix is a mythical animal associated with the Heart, the “Emperor” of all the internal organs, and the Shen (the “Spirit” of the Heart), representing the spiritual link between the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the soul. The Pheonix here is incorporated into a symbol of Yin and Yang, representing the balance that forms the basis of health and well-being in Chinese medicine.
About Where We Work (land acknowledgement)
We would like to start by acknowledging that we live and work on the traditional territories of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe peoples, whose presence here continues to this day. We would also like to acknowledge the land we are on is at the meeting place of two treaties, the lands of the Mississauga of the Credit and those of the First Nations of the Williams Treaty. We would thank them and other Indigenous peoples for sharing this land with us. We are committed toward working toward truth, reconciliation and decolonization.
